A Nigerian lady has revealed how she defiled the odds and commentary from family and friends to marry the man she loves.

Identified as Oluwafunmilayo Fatai shocked many when she relocated to a slum in Lagos to start life from the foundation with a man she married there.

She told in an exclusive interview that she has no regrets about dumping city life to be with the love of her life - six years on.

She got married to her husband in 2016.

According to, Oluwafunmilayo said a teaching job took her to the lagoon slum. She would teach there and return to the city. In the course of her teaching, the man noticed her and began asking her out.

She said she didn't like him at first, but certain observations changed her perspective. "It is love. He is educated and an alfa. And I am also a Muslim. So, that is what I want in a man.

"He is a good Muslim, learned person, speaks truth and never tells lies and he loves me. So, what else am I looking for?"

The school teacher revealed that her previous admirers mocked her when they learnt she settled for someone who lives in a slum.

"I felt bad then but now, I am okay with it. "I believe whatever God said we will be or where we will be, will happen."

Her husband works as an uber driver in Ajah, while she teaches in the slum.

On her siblings' reaction to her love choice, Oluwafunmilayo said they weren't happy with it and didn't support the union.

The SSCE holder who aspires to further her studies like her hubby added that even her friends don't visit at all because of this.

She said: "My siblings were not okay with it. They don't support it. They seldom come to see me because blood is thicker than water. "Even my friends don't visit me at all. My friends only came here when I got married.

"We just talk on phone."
